'A Quiet Place' is coming to Universal's Halloween Horror Nights

June 6, 2024, 11:46 AM · Universal is inviting horror fans to find "A Quiet Place" at its U.S. theme parks this fall.

Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood today announced that they each will feature a haunted house based on the horror franchise "A Quiet Place" at their Halloween Horror Nights this year.

"Fans will relive the tension that will come to life in the iconic scenes from the first two films, including traveling through the farmhouse that serves as the Abbott family’s shelter and stepping into the root cellar where Evelyn Abbott escapes to give birth as one of the creatures closes in," Universal said in its press release. "The snarls of the larger-than-life predators will follow guests at every spine-chilling turn, and guests must remember: if they hear you, they will hunt you."

For the first time, Universal will incorporate the use of American Sign Language (ASL) within the houses, reflecting its importance in the John Krasinski-directed films. Here is the hype video.

Halloween Horror Nights begins Friday, August 30 at Universal Studios Florida and Thursday, September 5 at Universal Studios Hollywood. A one-night Premium Scream Night will happen in Orlando in advance of HHN opening, on Thursday, August 29. Halloween Horror Nights continues on select nights through Sunday, November 3 on both coasts.

Universal Orlando last month announced six original concept houses for its event. This is the first franchise IP house to be announced, with three more reveals to come. In Hollywood, A Quiet Place is the first reveal of its eight haunted houses. Hollywood also will be bringing back its Terror Tram this year.

Tickets are now on sale for Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood as well as in Florida.

I don't know how this is going to work. HHN houses are naturally LOUD places, so trying to create an experience based on an IP where silence is literally golden, I don't see how they can capture the ambiance of the movies. Unless they're creating soundproof hallways and rooms, there's going to be noise that you're going to hear throughout the experience, ruining the entire premise of the movie series. How can you have "A Quiet Place" when there are hundreds of people doing a conga-line through an HHN house?

I really like A Quiet Place because of it's unique angle on the thriller/horror genre, and there's some great creature design and set pieces that should translate well into an HHN maze (silo, basement, and bridge), but I worry that this will just turn into a basic monster house with nothing but jump scares and some clever set design that kind of defeats the purpose of licensing this IP.

I’m with Russell on this. It’s all going to come down to how well the execution of the house matches the concept of the franchise.

Universal is promising a "unique sound design" for this one, and I suspect that fans will hold them to that. This is a creative reach, but I love to see parks take those. Looking forward to seeing (and hearing) how it turns out.

The only thing I think they could do is to use "noise cancelling" machines that emit negative sound in every single room, and then layer a soundtrack on top. However, that type of technology isn't cheap, and the thought of deploying individual devices in a temporary structure (along with layers of sound dampening materials throughout) has got to be a daunting challenge.
